The field of bioprinting holds great promise for human health. Health Research BC awardee, Dr. Stephanie Willerth’s innovative work in this area will ultimately improve health outcomes for people with neurological diseases.
Through partnerships, we are enabling and strengthening a growing body of cutting-edge research in specialty areas across the province to improve patient care and outcomes. In this article, we shine the spotlight on partnerships in neuroscience research.
Through a partnership with CIHR’s Institute of Health Services and Policy Research, the Health System Impact Fellowship provides doctoral and postdoctoral awardees with an experiential learning opportunity where they can advance impact goals and contribute to improved health system performance. Applications are now open for the 2023 competition.
We are British Columbia’s health research agency.
Our ambition is to inspire and connect curious, creative and passionate minds to drive discovery and innovation for better health and health care. We support the people who do and use health research and we strengthen the system in which they work.
The BC SUPPORT (Support for People & Patient-Oriented Research & Trials) Unit supports, patient-oriented research throughout BC to answer research questions that matter to patients and improve health care.
Clinical Trials BC supports clinical trial investigators, sites and institutions to ensure a world-class destination for clinical trials. Focusing on infrastructure and capacity building with a collaborative approach, we enable clinical trial excellence across British Columbia.
Research Ethics BC supports a province-wide, harmonized system for research ethics reviews of studies conducted in multiple geographic areas involving the resources, people, patients or data from more than one BC research institution. Our harmonized ethics review model co-created with BC health research partners, is now in use by all BC health authorities, most research universities, and many colleges.
We are British Columbia’s health research agency. We are working towards a future where BC is recognized worldwide for its vibrant, coherent, inclusive, and globally competitive health research system, which improves the health of British Columbians, the health system and the economy. Considerations of equity, diversity and inclusion are top-of-mind as we begin our journey together, and our commitment to Indigenous reconciliation and self-determination will guide us.
As a provincial organization, our work extends across many Indigenous lands and territories throughout BC. We acknowledge with respect and humility that our Vancouver offices are located on the traditional and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
